"I see things no one else sees."
Adderkit had woken not long before, roused by sunlight; she and her siblings had been piled together, her chin resting on Hemlock-kit's flank and Yewkit's tail curled over her ribs. A careful yawn and stretch before she eased herself from the pile, her nose twitching at the scent of prey drifting on a lazy breeze through the camp.
Padding from the nursery, Adderkit took a moment to smooth her ruffled pelt with steady strokes of her tongue, lying flat tufts of fur sticking up from where she'd lain on it in the night. A moment more to swipe a paw over her face and then she rose again, a short shake of her body before she headed to the fresh-kill pile for a meal.
Choosing a mouse, Adderkit tugged it free and headed back to the nursery and settled down outside of it in a ray of sunlight to begin eating. Her green eyes scanned the camp as she ate, watching as the dawn patrol entered the camp again, each of them also taking from the pile before dispersing, and warriors and apprentices were being sorted into hunting patrols.
She noticed Lionstar's appearance from the leader's den in the same disinterested way she had taken in the rest of the cats. Leader he was, but it didn't mean all that much to Adderkit. He was important, but he was still just a cat, just like she was.
Her gaze flitted about the camp again as the tom headed for the nursery, most likely to visit with his own kits. Glancing back at him as he neared, Adderkit gave a flick of her tail in acknowledgement of him as he neared, but with her mouth full of mouse, she said nothing to him- expecting him to simply pass her by.
